The song's upbeat energy is highlighted by pulsating drops sprinkled throughout. The track encompasses both collaborators' styles perfectly while still delivering something completely new and unexpected.

Last week we first previewed an exciting clip of the official music video for “Gust Of Wind”, a second collaboration between Pharrell and Daft Punk after their massive "Get Lucky" release. You now can watch the full cinematic journey in all its glory directed by Edgar Write, responsible for flicks like "Shaun of the Dead" and the upcoming Ant-Man among others.
The video sees Pharrell in some far off forest with his ranger hat and all moving around as dancers fly in every which direction. We then see Daft Punk represented by giant stone molds of their helmets lift up from the ground and float around while singing their chorus. The video is very well done, and leaves the viewer craving to see more Daft Punk by the end of it, which closes out with a climatic appearance of an outline of the famed robots in the sky at the very end. Watch below and you can pick up your copy on iTunes. Enjoy!
The daunting task of remixing a Flume and Chet Faker song has prevented many from taking on the duties, but booming New York producer Sweater Beats has pulled off quite the magnificent feat with his latest remix. The chilled out single "Drop The Game" from Flume and Chet's highly acclaimed Lockjaw EP is given a gritty yet melodic future bass overhaul to Sweater Beats creative implantation. Prolonging the violin sample to include a new powerful synth pattern and accenting the euphoric bass bursts makes this remix a great listen and possibly even better than the original. Sweater Beats is passing this remix out as a free download and will be hitting the road this fall alongside Chance the Rapper for a string of college shows that culminates with a performance at this years Day of The Day put on by Hard Events. Check out the dates below and above all… Enjoy

The buzz surrounding producer / DJ extraordinaire Skrillex and rapper Chance the Rapper unexpected time in the studio is the talk of the music world currently with the potential for future collaborations at stake (see above in studio alongside Mike Will Made It). Skrillex unleashed the first of their sessions at his intimate Brooklyn show apart of his Takeover tour last night. The production doesn't sound like your typical Skrillex track and is more of a hip-hop song as opposed to a dubstep banger with Chance's charismatic vocals abundant throughout the length of it. Regardless of this being a very rough quality camera video, it gives us the first sample of what sounds like some serious chemistry between the artists. Enjoy
